My hubbie enjoys watching the footie on our 42" THPE30 usually via Sky. Personally I think the picture isn't as good as it was on our 32" crt Sony but it is still a good picture and as I don't like footie it doesn't bother me in the slightess!
Hi Jepsen from Denmark, this is Handsome from Denmark. I am the happy owner of the TH-PA30 plasma and I just love it. The picture is great also with football. I have my DVD hooked up with component cables and the picture is just absolutely perfect. So IMO you should just go get it.
